|Lilacs bouquets at the Farmers' Market|
This morning the ladies met at Lake Padden, one of our regular venues, with light rain falling when we began, with overcast skies but happy smiling faces, since we knew that we could stop pretty much at any time if it got worse. But instead it got much better, with just a little rain, and even some sun puddles interspersed with the mud puddles. That's the nice part about this time of year: yes, it might be raining, or overcast, but just wait awhile and it'll change.
Tomorrow is Mother's Day here in the US, and everywhere there were bouquets to be purchased, and the Farmers' Market had plenty of items to choose for Mom. I didn't buy one of these, but I did spend some time admiring them.

You have such will power, Jan!ReplyDelete
Love the lilacs. Having been infected with Ransomware, my heart goes out to those hit in the latest round.ReplyDelete
I wish you a happy Mother's day with lots of cookies!ReplyDelete
I wish I had your imagination ... I have to consume at least one ... er, two .. okay six or seven cookies to appreciate them!ReplyDelete
I would have enjoyed the Lilac virus!ReplyDelete
Please teach me how to eat cookies with my eyes. I saw your cookie photo and wanted to eat one of those cookies. I love the lilacs. For me, I could enjoy the photo without sneezing, so thanks for not sending the smell.ReplyDelete
Yes I could smell those Lilacs! Not even one cookie? Youhave willpower to resist! :)ReplyDelete
Ha ha, I do the same thing. I have got to the point where I can look at a cake without wanting to eat it. As you say, you know what it tastes like and that will do! Over the last few years I have largely lost my taste for sweet things, preferring my dinners over my teas.ReplyDelete
The virus thingy yesterday was awful for our hospitals over here, but I think they're getting on top of it now. Funnily enough I only recently backed up my computer and renewed my virus detector. Must have been sixth sense!
The roses here overpowered the lilacs, but I love lilacs! Your virus would have been a gentler one, for sure. Sorry, I cannot eat cookies with my eyes. It's a skill I wish I possessed!! ;)ReplyDelete
I love the smell of Minneapolis right now. Lilacs and crab apples. I also love both the taste and smell of cookies. I suppose that means I'm human after all!ReplyDelete
Oh, I do that too - eating with my eyes - especially in bakery shops!ReplyDelete
On our outing with the grands yesterday we managed to escape being rained on too. What a pleasant surprise.
If you perfect that lilac virus, send it on. That would be lovely. Hum, I will have to try eye eating. Can't imagine it is very filling but hey--worth a shot.ReplyDelete
'Eating with my eyes'. What a brilliant idea but my lack of will power just won't let that happen.ReplyDelete
Dear DJan, are you offering classes in "eating" with my eyes?????? I could surely use that, especially when the food is a carb! Peace.ReplyDelete
You say: "I almost didn't put this picture on the post because I was afraid the scent would be so overpowering ..." I say....Oh sure, rub it in!!! You do know just how jealous I am of all of you that have lilacs blooming, don't you? Then....ReplyDelete
You say knowing how all cookies taste without tasting them to save calories...you COULD call that eye cookies! Instead of eye candy. Geez...trying to be a bit of a comedic blogger, I am, and it's not working. Sounded better in my mind that typing it. I tried!!!!
You are too funny, DJan. I had two lilac bushes in our backyard in Illinois, but alas... I never did get all that many lilacs enough to smell them.ReplyDelete
That ransonsomeware virus is really spooky. Any virus is spooky, but something that can hold a hospital or country hostage is really frightening.
I hope you had a Happy Mother's Day. Mine was very quiet.
